In 20th cen­tury, Ambed­kar gave reser­va­tion to poor peo­ple; now Modi has given 10% quota to the eco­nom­i­cally back­ward sec­tions. MANOHAR LAL KHAT­TAR, chief min­is­ter

HISAR:Com­par­ing Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi with Bhim Rao Ambed­kar of the 21st cen­tury, chief min­is­ter (CM) Manohar Lal Khat­tar said Modi is the only prime min­is­ter who gave 10% reser­va­tion to eco­nom­i­cally back­ward of Swarna com­mu­nity.

Ad­dress­ing the oadh com­mu­nity swab­hi­man ma­hasam­me­lan in Hisar on Sun­day, the Haryana chief min­is­ter said, “In the 20th cen­tury, law­maker Bhim Rao Ambed­kar gave reser­va­tion to poor peo­ple and now PM Naren­dra Modi has given 10% reser­va­tion to the eco­nom­i­cally back­ward sec­tions of the Swarna com­mu­nity.”

Khat­tar said the com­mu­nity has worked very hard for the devel­op­ment of the state and so the Bharatiya Janata Party gov­ern­ment in the state and cen­tre has launched sev­eral schemes for them.

He added the state gov­ern­ment will also pro­vide ₹21 lakh for the con­struc­tion of a dharamshala for the oadh com­mu­nity in Hisar, said chief min­is­ter (CM) Manohar Lal Khat­tar.

Social jus­tice and em­pow­er­ment min­is­ter Kr­is­han Ku­mar Bedi, who was also present on the oc­ca­sion, said, “Bring the BJP gov­ern­ment in the state again and the gov­ern­ment which is al­ready work­ing for all sec­tions, will work more for the poor peo­ple.” Be­sides this, the CM also in­au­gu­rated a rail­way over­bridge over Hisar-Sadalpur rail­way cross­ing.
